Spring Pastels

Time for more pastel shades...

... when I posted my first pastel shaded look back in February one dear follower of mine wrote me that pastel colors fit my personality much better than any other colors and that I should wear them more often. This comment made me really happy. Not only did a follower of mine seem to know about my personality but also did I pretty much agree to her statement. I am more the soft kind of women so why not wear more soft tones? Well, I do since! And I did on Saturday when we went to the market and took these pictures here afterwards :) 

So here I am wearing a second hand jeans, an old Lands End shirt, my always-and-everyday-worn light pink jacket and the scarf that I bought the same day (or rather nigth) as the jacket in Chicago. Plus my "new" second hand loafers. This month is little crazy with shoes. I rarely ever buy shoes but this month I bought like three pairs. All second hand but all only worn once, so they are basically new. You will definetly get to see the others soon :)

How do you like this look?

I hope you are having a great start into the new week! Here this week is going to be as exciting as the former weeks have been - since we have started our own business life is so thrilling somehow and I am soooooo in love with my work :) 

Also, next to work, I have another thing going on that I will share with you very soon... hopefully by next weekend... and I am incredibly excited about that one!

Anyway, have a great week for now and enjoy life!
Sending much love!

Around My Place (Part II - with Ecover)

It's time for another peek into my home...

back in December I showed you a few details from my flat and today I want to take you back there :) 

Also I want you to get to the know the brand ecover
aka "tapping into nature today for a cleaner tomorrow".

Why is ecover so absolutely worth promoting? There is a whole long list of good reasons:

- All ecover formulas are biodegradable. That means that after use, the ingredients will break down into natural compounds 

- ecover bottles are made from a blend of sugarcane-based plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic (and they look good - dont they :)?).

-All of ecover’s products are Leaping Bunny certified. Leaping Bunny is an international certification that assures that no animal testing is done in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories or suppliers.

- ecover is using nature-inspired chemistry like fermentation to minimize their impact on the environment (fermentation can be used to make effective ingredients for soap) 

Need more good reasons? Visit to learn more about this really and honestly impressive brand that is doing a great job in promoting a more sustainable and conscious lifestyle (almost) all over the world. You can find their prodcuts all over Europe, in Malayasia, the Emirates, the US and so on... ;) 

I have been using their dish soap for a long time and I was amazed by their other products that I got to test for you.

So the first picture is from our kitchen. My husband build the kitchen all by himself and I really love it a lot. It's the place where I spend most of my time :) 

These pictures here are from our bathroom. I never had a bathroom with a window before I moved in here, and I enjoy it so much! I can take my shower in the sunshine and this truely is pure luxury for me!  

About the ecover products here - I was really happy to get to try their laundry powder with zero fragrance, dyes or optical brighteners. This is exactly what I was looking for for my little one's diapers and clothes. Find out more about the laudry powder here

The stain remover is doing a pretty good job when it comes to cocoa stains - I only tried it on cocoa stains so far ... yes, we drink a lot of hot chocolate (vegan and sugar free of course!)

By the way, last Sunday my husband and I spent the day Spring-cleaning the house. The ecover products arrived just on time to help us - and they did a great job! I never thought I would say so but Spring cleaning is so much fun! We spent the entire Sunday cleaning every corner of the house, listening to music, having breaks on the balcony and ending up with a clean and nice flat :)

Now to our living room ... we spent loads of beautiful hours in there during Winter, but now that it is getting warmer we rarely ever go there, because we are on our balcony all day long, or if not outside, then in the kitchen, preparing food, chocolate, muffins or smoothies to enjoy on the balcony (no, that's not true, we also work in our office several hours every day). Anyway, at night the evening sun is shining in to the room and I love the light at this time of the day.

I hope you enjoyed this peek into my place and I really recommend checking out ecover and start cleaning in a more sustainable way! You will not regret it and the environment will thank you for sure! 

Sending loads of love!

Pencil Skirt and Dark Blue Blouse

Happy Monday Everybody!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, a fun and nice April fools day and a lot of Spring vibes coming around your corner of the world!?

I enjoyed loads of sunshine this weekend and I truely inauguarted (can I actually say this in this context?) our balcony. I spent most of my week out there, enjoying the sun, smoothies, time with my daughter, breakfast, lunch, dinner, hot chocolate (yes hot chocolate on a mild Spring night is as good as it is on a cold Winter night on the couch ;)), etc. etc. etc. in between I went to the playground for an hour or two and then back to the balcony. It was a perfect weeken!

But now to my look! Bare legs! Yesses! My first bare legs of the year on April 4th - I think this is a new record of mine. I really wanted to wear a skirt today and I really did NOT want to wear tights. So bare legs it was. With my pencil skirt from H&M (from last Spring) I am wearing a maternity blouse (but noone can tell, can you?) and my very last "bad" purchase - last year in August when I already had decided to buy second hand or fair only, I went for a very last time to ZARA and got this jacket. I feel very good about my new shopping behaviour but I do not regret that I bought this jacket ;) 

How do you like this look? 

Have a most beautiful week everyone out there!
Sending loads of love and sunshine to all of you!

A Week in Denmark

Today I want to share some pictures from Denmark with you...

... I spent last week on the island Langeland and had a wonderful relaxing time there. We went for loads of walks and I enjoyed the nature so much.
It was a very relaxing and a very peaceful vacation which I enjoyed a lot. The island of Langeland is a very quiet place. There are not many people, not many cars, not much noise and not much stress. It is the perfect place to calm down, to forget about all the sad things happening on this planet and to just enjoy family and nature. I will not write a lot but rather just show you a few pictures and let you make you own conclusions :)

These first few pictures are from Tranekär on Langeland

These ones are from when we went for a walk in the woods of Langeland... it was on one of the few sunny days we had during our stay :)

We also spent a lot of time at the beach and went for walks around there. The weather was cold but I enjoyed it anyway, put some cozy clothes on and loved to feel the cold wind on my face :) 

One day we went to the most northern point of Langeland, the small town of Lohals...we walked around the harbor, the beach and the woods in the area :)

I hope you enjoyed these pictures. My next small vacation is already booked and I cannot wait to go there... the landscape will be very different from the one on Langeland in Denmark, yet also very beautiful. I will let you know more in early June ;)

So far, have a great weekend ahead and a lovely time with whatever you are up to!
Sending much love!

Light Pink and Baby Blue

Since I am all light pink and baby blue today...

... I decided that at least the background for the pictures should be somehow rough... I do not want to look like a candy, you know ;)!? 

So about my look today. I changed my closet back from Winter items to Summer items and found these chino pants! Of course I had to put them on right away. I wore them on the blog last Summer here with a white top, so I wanted to wear them with another color this time. I thought baby blue would look cute. When I put on the baby blue shirt (from Hess Natur, an old one from my mother actually) and looked in the mirror, I saw some kind of candy with hair and glasses... so I decided to put the chunky cardigan from Free People on top to get some edge to the outfit. 

When we went out for a walk to enjoy this beautiful day today (and to take some pictures for my blog) I decided to go to the tram-graveyard for pictures. The background colors may not really fit the colors of the look but somehow I was looking for a rough background for this girly colored outfit. I think I will be back at the tram graveyard for more pictures in the coming weeks and months. Its really a great place for shootings :) 

How do you like the look? 

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!? I will tell you more about what I have been up to in my Thursday post :) 
So far, have a great week, enjoy the Spring weather wherever you are and be happy! 

Sending much love!

Favorite Smoothies for Spring

Its officially Spring!

Monday I shared my first Spring look and today I am celebrating Spring with a bunch of yummy and healthy smoothies!

I dont know about your farmers market but on mine all the fruits are starting to come back and there are loads and loads of greens too! Of course I enjoy all of this goodness in my daily smoothies. Here are a few new recipes that I have been enjoying lately:

Banana and Cantaloupe

Melons are coming back! Yeah for that! I love melons of all kind and I am so excited that they are coming back to the farmers markets aorund here!
One of my favorites smoothies both for Spring and Summer is baaananaaa with cantaloupe melon. I like to have a huge one with three ripe (spotty) bananas and two cantaloupe melons. Maca goes soooo well with both the flavor and the color of this smoothie! I like to add some Maca because it is so rich in vitamin B, vitamins C and E. Plus it provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.I got my Maca powder from Greenic - you can find their super foods at various online shops

Wild Garlic, Fennel, Grapefruit and Lemon

Okay, now you may say something like "what??? Wild garlic in a smoothie???". Thats what I thought, but then I tried it and I figuered - its not bad at all! Wild garlic is in season right now and we have loads of it in the wood close to my house. So on my morning runs I make a little stop and pick some. I like to make pesto with it... and smoothie. Since the taste is rather strong I like to combine it with fruit strong in taste too, like grapefruit and lemon. The fennel somehoe tones down the smoothie and makes it taste even fresher. For a little extra I added some Matcha Fresh blend from Greenic - it has matcha, barley grass, wheat grass, lemon grass and lemon myrtle. So many antioxidants at once!

Celery, Dates and Apple

Celery is back in season and it goes so well with some fresh apples and some sweeeeeet dates :) I usually use two apples and two sticks of celery together with a handful of dates. 
To this smoothie I added some of th "slim" blend from Greenic. Not that I want to loose weight (I am already thinner than I was before pregnancy since the little one is drinking so much :)) but the blend is just the perfect superfood power blend: green coffee, topinambur, barley grass, turmeric, ginger, and some sunflower protein. Pure goodness!    

Spinach, Dates, and Blood Orange 

This one is my current morning smoothie - you can maybe tell from the pictures that the sun is just raising :) 
I really have this one almost every morning, sometimes I have normal oranges instead of blood oranges and sometimes I have grapefruit. And yeah, sometimes I have other greens too, depending on what my organic market sells. But these days its a lot of spinach, so I have a lot of spinach smoothies. I really love this smoothie. Its more than love actually, I am pretty much addicted to it. When I wake up in the morning its the first thing I am thinking about. I usually get up to make two jars and take them back to bed to have it there with my husband and the little one (its my favorite time of the day when the three of us are in bed, cuddling and drinking green smoothie :)). I always add either barley grass to this one or Moringa. Both are incredible superfoods. I know Moringa from my visits in Ghana where it grows like everywhere and I was really happy to learn that Greenic sells it here in Germany! 

By the way, now that fresh veggies are back on the market I also love to buy radishes, beets, carrots and cabbage turnip with the greens and use them in my smoothies! The greens do actually have so much more nutrients than the roots! So go ahead a put them into your blender :)!

By the way, I have been posting a little bit about Greenic back here when I showed you my favorite smoothies for Fall and Winter. I am using their superfoods for a few months now and I am really happy with them! I am really excited to be able to include the brand in the post about my favorite Spring smoothies as well. I actually rarely ever drink a smoothie without a superfood in it. I use barley grass every day (I wrote about barley grass back here) but I also like to try new super foods and to add different powdered fruits and greens into my smoothies. Greenic has this great variety which I love, plus they have some awesome blends! I also like to use dried chokeberry or dried goji berry powder but most often its either pure barley grass or Greenic

I hope you enjoyed this post!
Sending much love to you!

Hello Spring!

Yihaaaaaa for Spring!

This is my first official Spring look! The warm weather came last week and stayed for a few days. I took the opportunity to shoot this look and to show you my new sunglasses. I actually get all my glasses from Firmoo. I got a first pair some three years ago and I wear them ever since. I have one pair of sunglasses that I have been wearing for the past two years. This year I thought its time for a new one :)

Otherwise, I am wearing my second hand boyfriend jeans here, together with a shirt from Lands End. I am wearing the shirt quite a lot, but somehow it never made it on my blog before. Because of the floral print, I thougt its perfect for my first Spring look. Do you agree :)?  

Check out the golden tips of my shoes - arent they super fancy ;)? I really like them! I actually got these shoes from this second hand app that I am using - someone bought these booties, never wore them and sold them again for half the price. I love these kind of deals :)

I hope you all had a good weekend and an even better start into the new week!?
I went to see my father in northern Germany and explored a few pretty places around the Northern Sea Coast of Germany. By now I am actually in Denmark where I spend a week with my family in law. We have these really cute and cozy houses at the beach and even though the weather is bad, I just enjoy watching the waves all day long :) 

Sending much love to all of you!
